Hey, I'm Kristen and this is me in my actual backyard
And trust me, it did NOT look this pretty 4 years ago when we bought the house!! It was a weed-infested blank slate, thats only redeeming quality was 6 established peony bushes–one of which you see here.
Like you, I’ve always loved the low-maintenance aspect of perennials and have been trying for years to get my yard to the point where there is always something in bloom, without tons of work. Over years of experimenting in my garden, and observing more established gardens that had a more constant bloom pattern, I’ve broken down the method to always having something blooming in your yard. I call it the 3×3 method, and it is your new best friend that is going to help you get the yard you want with less work.
I’ve been gardening since my parents toted me along when I was a toddler, and my love of all things flowers runs deep. I’m a wife and mom to three littles and have a very full life, so I don’t have time for my garden to be ridiculously finicky or take up my entire day with weeds. I hear from gardeners like you every day on my blog, Shifting Roots, how you want to have an amazing garden, but you don’t know how to make it happen or have tons of time to research it.
